. >> america cannot determine the future of egypt. that's a task for the egyptian people. we don't take sides with any particular party or political figure. i know it's tempting inside of egypt to blame the united states or the west or some other outside actor for what's gone wrong. we've been blamed by supporters of morsi, we've been blamed by the other side as if we are supporters of morsi. that kind of approach will do nothing to help egyptians achieve the future that they deserve. >> reporter: and, thomas, while we are waiting for reaction to come in, i suspect part of what you'll hear are some lawmakers making the point this doesn't go far enough. we know senator john mccain has been consistently calling on the united states to pull back and to end the $1.3 billion in military aid that it sends to egypt every year. there are some democrats that have gotten on board with that as well. representative keith ellieson making that same point yesterday. bipartisan calls for the united states to take a much tougher stance of president obama continuing to get updated on the situation in egypt whi

of ways going to be a vote on america's role in the world moving forward. no? >> that's right. should america play the world's police officer, right? are we the ones in charge of deciding when an international law is broken, like assad did with the chemical weapons, since there is no other country willing to step up, is this the role of the united states? it's the role the united states believes it has been playing for some 60 years. the question now is there does seem to be a war fatigue because of iraq 20 years ago, and 20 years ago it was because of vietnam, but is that going to make this congress hesitant? i think in the house it's going to be close, and i assume in the senate they will have an easier hurdle, and in the house is where it will be hard and tricky work to do, and last night i had a conversation last night to national security officials who were admitting, the issue with congress, they were pooh poohing it with congress. government funding, immigration, debt sealing, and alienating them to syria would have made it that much harder on the agenda. >> richard engel is st

it is the obstructionism in the house and senate that's driving the rest of america crazy or whether it's shutting down political debate, the question for me is are republicans like reince priebus interested in the democratic process or are they interested in trying to achieve some kind of oh political hegemeny that serves them? >> it work it is refs and not the players. i want to focus on the players now. there could be an emerging star for the gop. we have new numbers out about 2016. we'll start with hillary clinton. heifer he numbers are big in new hampshire. 62%. joe biden with 8%. deval patrick at 5. cory booker at 2% and andrew cuomo at 1%. if hillary clinton were to declare this is a shoe-in at this point. she's not said boo about which way she's thinking. >> that's true. it is a unique set of circumstances. hillary clinton is a powerhouse with no real rival since eisenhower in terms of people getting ready to run. if she runs it will be difficult to even compete with her on any level. if she doesn't the field is wide open. >> let's talk about the emerging star on the right. when it comes to the
voice in the world, but the reason that doesn't happen in america is because we are very familiar with oprah's face and with oprah's brand. abroad she is just another woman of color. so it is typical of oprah to share an authentic true organic experience. it's expected of her to share what took place. but that could happen to oprah anywhere in the world where they aren't familiar with a black woman who walks in underdressed and looking to purchase a 40 thousand dollar handbag. i wasn't surprised to see her share her truth. that is the oprah brand, her entire brand has been built on oprah telling the truth of every struggle she's had and it didn't surprise me. i'm actually happy she did it. >> you point out she is a singular and very powerful voice planet and domestically has a huge voice. according to the center for response of politics the only campaigns that oprah has donated to in the past two decades was president obama's and recently hold ago fund-raiser for cory booker who won last night's democratic nomination for new jersey senate to replace frank lautenberg. it's been est
